Mas du Soleilla wins International Trophy

IMG_5658

Congratulations to Swiss winemakers Peter Wildbolz and Christa Derungs for winning three Decanter World Wine Awards this year including the International Trophy for their 2007 Les Bartelles, La Clape.  I’ve yet to taste the ’07 but the older vintages are superb – the vines are picked by hand, the grapes are transported in small baskets and finally sorted by hand in Peter’s chai on this ‘sunny hill’ above Narbonne Plage.  Read the judges’ tasting notes on all three winning wines on www.decanter.com.  A full tasting note for Les Bartelles to follow…
